THE SEMINOLE TRIBE OF FLORIDA IS COMMITTED TO BUILDING A BRAND
We have all enjoyed a good western. Who hasn't spent the day watching the John Wayne movie marathons or even more recently, Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones in Lonesome Dove, battling the elements and the Indians to acquire more rangeland for their herds? The history of the American rancher moving west has been chronicled time and time again through movies, books and television. In those accounts, all the action was out west, and the cowboys usually came out on top. But, the modern day version of that story is very different, as demonstrated at a recent media day event hosted by the Seminole Tribe of Florida on their Brighton reservation.

IT'S THE PITTS -- ROUND MOUNDS OF SOUND
Many of the great cattle auctioneers and ring men of yesteryear were “fully figured" men. Most of the road agents today seem to be in better shape but a lot of the men I traveled with were well marbled big men with booming voices and little chance of ever becoming thoroughbred jockeys.

BLACK INK -- ABOVE AVERAGE?
In some ways, my cowherd is average. In other ways it is above and in still others, below. Those things are true of each cow in my herd, too. That's all part of what “average” means.
